Two Old Purples A New Way
I took one look at this horizonal gradient framed nailart by @nadeekim and I knew I had to try something like it, too. I've never tried a horizontal gradient, and I loved the two-toned frame, too.
I started with a purple I knew needed some love - Catrice Dirty Berry. I lusted after this scattered holo, and scoured the internet for it! Pretty sure I got it from a Bulgarian web site. I was a little cray-cray, but it was totally worth it.
I put some A-England Lady Of The Lake on the right side of the nails. Trust me, it looked darker in person.
Framing half the nail with white and the other half in black also made the two sides look lighter and darker because of the optical illusion. So cool. I'm a freakin' nail magician, that's what.
Lots of transitions here, so don't forget the topcoat to smooth everything out!
You can maybe see the transitions clearer in this picture. Or, is it an illusion? A trick of the light?
Bottle shot: Catrice Dirty Berry, A-England Lady Of The Lake, and stripers in white and black.
Does this make you see these two old polishes in a new light?
